"Peters concedes this point might be lost on someone living on Saskatchewan's mean streets. 'Aboriginal households living in areas of extreme poverty talk about fear, housing inadequacy and problems their children face. It doesn't help to tell them they aren't living in a 'ghetto' as defined by academics,"'she says. 'Still, areas of poverty and areas where Aboriginal people live in Saskatoon are not like U.S. ghettos, and it isn't helpful to use language that suggests that they are. The real challenge is to find out what is going on with Aboriginal people in Canadian cities, and not assume that we know by analogy with the U.S. situation. We need a made-in-Saskatchewan, made-on-the-Prairies perspective."" (U of S News | Online Aboriginal Atlas Reveals New Realities in Prairie Cities)

:: note :: . . . high school students constantly involved in the process of identity always refer to the eastside/westside struggle . . . poverty, aboriginal ancestry, housing, municipal planning bias, all contribute to identity . . .
